Hello,

I am using the latest version of telerik reporting (Telerik_Reporting_Q2_2010_v4_1_10_714_dev).

I created a report, with tables, subreports and some conditional formatting. When using the winforms reportviewer the export to excel work fine, but when using the silverlight reportviewer, I only get a part of an error message. Sadly I have to use the silverlight reportviewer, cause it is needed to show the report in a silverlight application. Exporting the report to excel is needed too, cause the user should be able to copy parts of the report in some existing documents.

This error message is shwon in the little window, where I should normally Save the report. The shown Message is "Merged=False, PBreport[0], that i" ... There is some text before and some text after, but its not visible in this window. It's shown in the picture I attached.

The export to rtf is working, but I needed the export to excel, cause the export to rtf, delivers some strange formating results. Some tables are not exported, as they are defined in the report. The export to pdf is also working.

So what can I do, to get this problem solved?

best regards
Dominik.

Hi Dominik F├╝rst,

This error occurs whenever you have overlapped items, which as described in the Design Considerations for Excel Rendering help article, are not allowed in excel. So in cases like yours, whenever you plan to export to excel you need to make sure that you do not have overlapping items.

However this error is always thrown when exporting to excel, independent of what viewer is used to export if whether you export manually. So there must be something different in the report you're displaying in the Silverlight viewer compared to the one displayed in the Winforms viewer. Please check for the above and if you are still having problems, open a support ticket and attach a sample runnable report replicating the issue.

All the best,
Steve
